Story

Welcome to my give.net fundraising page. If you are a UK taxpayer, please confirm that you would like to reclaim Gift Aid on your donation. This will add 25p to every £1 you give. 

This project began in 2018 to support schools in two extremely poor communities on Ometepe Island, Nicaragua.  Funds are being used to provide uniforms to enable children to attend school, and teachers with necessary materials and opportunities to compete their training. The schools are being supported with internet access, support for cultural activities and their football team to compete in national leagues. The country has experienced political difficulties in 2018 leading to a loss of tourism and loss of income for the population of this island.  Work is unpredictable and families often do not know where their next meal will come from, let alone providing uniform and stationery for their children.   We want to give these communities hope for the future.
